MERCED, Calif. (KFSN) -- A family mourning their father is pleading for help after their final memories of him were stolen.
Lawrence Sarginson died Saturday, and his family says several mementos were stolen from their car just a few days later.
The Merced County Sheriff's Department says they're still looking into the incidents but no arrests have been made yet. The family said several items were stolen from the vehicle, but the only ones they want back are the last few memories of their father.
The Sarginson family should be planning a funeral for their father, but the family had to deal with a theft shortly after he died.
"It twists the knife a little, but more from what already is a difficult situation," Lawrence's son Kevin Sarginson said.
